Did you know Camden Council area has 11,190 0-4 year olds making up 9.4% of the Camden population? and 22.4% of the Camden Council population are parents and homebuilders. 

These statistics from the recent 2021 ABS Census data highlights Camden Council has a high number of families with children under 4 years, with a larger number of new parents in the Camden area than the rest of greater Sydney.

Being a new parent can be scary and daunting time, especially when parents might not be sure where to go for the right supports. It can also be difficult for new parents who have recently moved to the Camden area to be able to build connections with other new parents. We have put together a list of local supports and services that are available for new parents.
